    Decent kit, not great

    Comments On Dec 17, 2018:Two primary issues with this kit. The first is that you need a really long bit to get through the blank. Most people have a 3/8" in their kit but this requires a longer than standard bit. I had to drill the blank out in segments which was truly not ideal. The second issue was that the "grip" component of this pen was hard plastic. It almost had a carbon fiber feel. I was expecting it to be more like the rubber that most kits come with. As a result I didn't use it and glad I didn't as I think the pen has a much nicer feel without it. Finished product is nice. Would post a photo but not sure I know how to...

    Nice Size

    Comments On Aug 29, 2017:I like trying out new pens. I used a section of walnut from a remnant board end with an interesting growth. Upon finishing the pen I intentionally sanded and polished the gripper instead of leaving it black. My wife loves it but I'm not sure if I would buy it again. Lots of work to get the gripper to fit.
